attack in benghazi, on the diplomatic compound there. the white house has come out to affirm that this is a terrorist attack, correct? >> yeah. it absolutely is a terrorist attack. we know the organization, organizations involved. there was no doubt about the fact that the attack on the consulate was planned and organized in advance. it had all the earmarks of a preplanned assault. weapons like mortars used in conjunction with small arms, automatic weapons and rocket-propelled grenades, launched in conjunction with one another, looked exactly like a preplanned attack. >> here's where we need to separate, though -- we talk about this movie that was made in america, you know, defaming the prophet mohammed. there were spontaneous reactions to that. the libyan situation with the death of the four americans is totally separate although it was compounded because of those things happening at the same time. >> i think the assault on the consulate and what took place in libya were the least of all the riots and conflagration that took place around the muslim world, the least associate

and available on youtube. >> would you call the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi an act of terrorism? >> i have no doubt about that. and it's a preplanned act of terrorism directed against american citizens. >> do you think the movie had anything to do with this attack on the consulate? >> not on this attack. not on this attack. it has nothing to do with this attack. >> and yesterday white house press secretary told reporters traveling on air force one, "it's the case that it's our view as an administration, the president's view, that it was a terrorist attack." it's the first explicit acknowledgement that the president believes the libyan attack was an act of terror. secretary of state hillary clinton speaking at the united nations on wednesday became the highest ranked official to publicly say there was a link between the attack and al qaeda. >> for some time al qaeda and other groups have launched attacks and kidnappings into neighboring countries and they are working with other violent extremists to undermine the democratic transitions under way in north africa as we tragically s

kerry is demanding he tell the truth about benghazi. every time you turn around, underneath this zone of the great speaker there is a president with massive unemployment. they just downgraded the economy for the last three months yesterday. the manufacturing index is collapsing. and so i'm just suggesting -- >> this benghazi story by the way is a huge story. right now dee dee myers the fbi won't even go into benghazi because it is so dangerous which leads you to wonder why they didn't listen to warnings before the attack and before our u.s. ambassador was killed. this is one of those issues and i think charles krauthammer said it perfectly today in "the washington post" that if mitt romney actually knew how to put forth an argument. >> right. >> he could really be grabbing attention. >> one of the problems was he jumped out ahead of this and politicized it in the hours immediately after the attack which discredited him in the media term as a spokesman for the other side. >> it was -- krauthammer said he could have done it so much better. >> and established himself as an alternative vo

in benghazi that killed ambassador chris stooerevens and three oth measures. members from both parties want more information. >> the issue goes beyond the day-to-day political infighting and you have members of both parties asking for more details in part because of the gravity of the situation and because there's an evolving eleven the information that's becoming public. john kerry, who heads the senate foreign relations committee, has put together a letter he sent to the state department with some members of the republican party as well asking for more information. now, some of what we are seeing, some of that pressure does have a more partisan edge where you have critics in the republican party who have put letters forward to secretary clinton, to the u.n. ambassador, susan rice specifically talking about what they believe were misstatements by the administration or a lack of being, i guess, savvy enough to suspect a terrorist attack, which some republican members like john mccain, like kelly ayotte have been saying was more likely than a spontaneous mob reaction. so there is a bit of th
